Christian von Koenigsegg says that, in contrast to other high-end brands, he has no intention of building a high-performance SUV.

At the start of 2020, Koenigsegg ventured into a space of the market it had never occupied before with the launch of the four-seat Gemera. During a recent interview, the man behind the hypercar manufacturer was asked by YouTuber Misha Charoudin if the brand’s family of models could grow further with an SUV.

Von Koenigsegg replied that he typically builds cars that he likes and he “has never been a great fan of SUVs” as he likes “sporty behavior” when he is driving. Additionally, he says that the handling dynamics of an SUV on the road aren’t good and that the whole idea of performance SUVs is an oxymoron, stating that car manufacturers building them are creating the kinds of vehicles that handle poorly and then trying to fix them.

Rather than venturing into the world of SUVs, von Koenigsegg says it would be more exciting for his company to build a high-riding version of the Gemera with Mad Max-inspired styling that offers exceptional performance on the street while also having some serious off-road credentials and being able to speed across sand dunes.

Of course, this isn’t to say that such a vehicle will be released, as Koenigsegg already has quite a lot on its plate readying both the Jesko and the Gemera for the production line. Nevertheless, if there’s enough customer demand, we wouldn’t rule out the Swedish company launching a Gemera variant that will be able to venture off the beaten track.

 


Shortly after a report surfaced indicating that the Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing models will debut on February 1, key specifications about the duo have leaked online.

According to Auto Verdict, who got a hold of the car manufacturer’s recently released order guides for the two performance sedans, it is confirmed that the CT5-V Blackwing will feature GM’s 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V8 while the CT4-V Blackwing will feature a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6.

Starting with the CT5-V Blackwing, no horsepower and torque figures are mentioned in the order guide but we know it will be the most powerful Cadillac ever, meaning it should have more than the 640 hp of the old CTS-V. Customers will have the option of either a six-speed manual transmission or a 10-speed automatic routing power to the rear wheels.

Cadillac asserts that the performance sedan will be the fastest V-Series model it has ever produced around a racetrack, while also having the ability to hit 60 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 200 mph (320 km/h). Other key features of the CT5-V Blackwing include FE4 performance suspension, Brembo brakes, and optional carbon ceramic brakes.

Meanwhile, the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing will rock a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6, the same engine as the ATS-V that was rated at 464 hp and 445 lb-ft (603 Nm), as its LF4 RPO code shows. Given that the new M3 Competition delivers 503 hp, we’d expect the Cadillac to match that figure. Regardless, the order guide confirms it will hit 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and max out at 189 mph (304 km/h). Like the CT5-V Blackwing, both six-speed manual and 10-speed automatic transmissions will be offered.

Instead of a run-of-the-mill press release, Kia took to the sky with a record-breaking pyrotechnic display in Incheon, Korea, to present its new logo.

Said to feature ‘symmetry’, ‘rhythm’ and ‘rising’ elements, it represents the automaker’s ambitions to nab a leading spot in the future mobility industry by pressing the hypothetical reset button and reinventing itself, with emphasis on the launch of new electric vehicles and the introduction of mobility services, among others.

“Kia’s new logo represents the company’s commitment to becoming an icon for change and innovation”, said the brand’s President and CEO, Ho Sung Song.

“The automotive industry is experiencing a period of rapid transformation, and Kia is proactively shaping and adapting to these changes”, he added. “Our new logo represents our desire to inspire customers as their mobility needs evolve, and for our employees to rise to the challenges we face in a fast-changing industry.”

In addition to putting the spotlight on its new logo, which was first shown back in 2019 at the Geneva Motor Show on the Imagine Concept, Kia also disclosed its new brand slogan, ‘Movement that Inspires’, which replaces ‘The Power to Surprise’.

After the new logo and slogan went official, Kia will present its new strategy next week. The ‘New Kia Brand Showcase’ event, which is scheduled for January 14 at 7:00 p.m. ET (Jan. 15 1:00 a.m. CET), will be live streamed on the automaker’s YouTube global channel.
